On Tuesday last I collected my B12 engine ( plus a hoard of other bits/parts etc) James had kindly stored for me.

Its been a journey in lots of ways but am very pleased with outcome and now having an engine which just needs a few more hours spent on it before its ready to go into my B12 (which may be a while though!)

So if I may again, thank James and his dad and also Jame's mum for their professionalism, patience and kindness during this aspect of my B12 restoration!

Elegantly simple design. No need to rush fitting it as it is a piece of art in no uncertain terms!

Elegant indeed! Smiley I once saw one with a glass top fitted and used as a table in the reception area of a very impressive private collection of Italian cars. The collection included a diverse range of makes and models including many rare Lancias and of course a Dilambda.

Sadly I didn't photograph the table, the Dilambda some of you will no doubt recognise.

The price probably reflects the low mileage. It's barely run in.

A good B12 is a lovely car but a bad one is potentially very expensive to make good.......and its not certain that one will ever make it good if there is metalwork in the A, sill and C post area. Mind you, long term B12 owners all seem to really love their cars. Refined, powerful, rigid and quiet are adjectives which spring to move mind.
There are several cars for sale in Italy at the moment but really good ones are few and far between.

Thought we'd strip down the clutch to see the condition of a number of parts and overall condition, as you can see we fractured the outer clutch cover, we were expecting to see the tiniest of movements indicating the pressure was lessen on the circlip to remove same, but didn't hence over tightening, oh well.

Needless to say evidence of work/changed plates being done previously, lots of oil everywhere too!

If I recall, the clutch was always the slightly weak link on an Aurelia

Please, remember to check if the clutch pressure plate is absolutely flat and not concave. If it only bears on the outer edge you will get problems with a slipping clutch. It took me some time to realize that this was the reason why I could not start the car on a slope.  Slight machining did the job.
